That was when OU’s old guard stood up, Romero Osby scoring on back-to-back possessions before Cam Clark scored on back-to-back-to-back possessions, making it 57-49. As they scored, Sam Grooms facilitated.
Another lull was interrupted by a 3-pointer from Amath M’Baye and yet another by a 3-pointer from Steven Pledger. Finally, it was Hornbeak down the stretch.
The gang’s all there.
By the way, the last time Kansas lost three straight was 2005. The last time the Jayhawks lost even two straight was 2006. But the rare Kansas losing streak steals nothing from OU.
“I’m not leaving out of here disgusted with my team,” Jayhawk coach Bill Self said. “We gave a decent effort out there, it just wasn’t good enough.”
Even good enough that the students rushed the floor.
Not even Castiglione predicted that, but they did.
The day OU beat Kansas. The day the Sooners scored the victory that made everything seem possible.
